National Black Movie Association is committed to three main objectives:

  1. To collect in-depth Black movie consumer data,
  2. To champion emerging and aspiring Black filmmakers and film professionals and contribute to the necessary resources required to advance careers in the film industry, and
  3. To curate valuable information and news in order to better educate, inform and expose the general public to more Black films.

We need your support in our effort to increase African American storytelling on the big screen. From large corporations to the individual moviegoer, we invite you to join us!
